Good Monday Morning Celts!  This is a big week, (seems like that’s all we have these days…) SBAC is starting, the 2nd 6wk grading period ends on Friday, and we’ll wrap the week up with the 50th annual PROM!  Tune in and get ready to learn all you need to know to be a successful Celt.

 

A big THANK YOU goes out to all the Seniors, Staff, Musicians, and Fans who made the Senior Vs. Staff Basketball game a huge success.  The Seniors fought hard, but they were no match for the dominant staff team, who ended up winning the game.

 

McNary potentially made over $4000 at the Drive One 4UR school event this weekend.  We would like to thank Keizer’s Skyline Ford and all of the students, staff, and drivers who helped us collect the money.  

 

Prom Tickets are on sale NOW!!  If all of your fees are paid you can get your ticket to the 50th annual Prom for $25.  There will be drinks, desserts, Dutch Rebel Drinks, and so much more.  This year’s special guest will be DJ Unique, the MC from our High School Nation event earlier this year.  This will be a high energy event, so be sure to come ready to dance.
